    Marvel Mystery Comics #2 (Timely, 1939) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white pages. High-grade copies of this book are not easy to find, and the same is true for unrestored ones (CGC has certified more restored than unrestored copies to date)!

    This issue is ranked among the 30 most valuable comic books by Overstreet, and it's the second comic Timely ever published (the series that began as Marvel Comics was retitled Marvel Mystery Comics from #2 on). The Human Torch and the Sub-Mariner head the all-star lineup, but reportedly publisher Martin Goodman pegged the Angel as the breakout star of the group, and that character got the cover here. The cover art has been credited to Claire Moe.

    As you can see below, just a few copies have been graded higher, with none exceeding 9.0.

    Overstreet 2009 VF 8.0 value = $22,500. CGC census 4/09: 1 in 8.0, 3 higher. From the Chicorel Collection.
